Toponymy[edit] The word 'Avadi' has been considered as an acronym for Armoured Vehicles and Ammunition Depot of India, however this fact has no base since, the defence establishments in Avadi
Avadi
were set up only in the 1960s, whereas the town itself had existed long before this happened and with the same name. The name Avadi
Avadi
actually means in Tamil 'a place filled with lot of cows'
(Aa) = cow + அடி (Adi) = location. The lake here in Avadi

was called as Paaleripattu. In very old land documents you can find this name 'Paaleripattu'. Corporation Status Awaited[edit] Avadi
